Train Track Tears

Walking down this old dirt path
The sky is overcast
And I can hear the distant sound of thunder crash

As I near the tracks
And the end of the path
I see you sitting on the old railroad bridge
Looking sadder than ever

On the tracks now I approach you
Without notice you mope on
I bend down and ask you what's wrong
You ignoring me shake your head

I sit down beside you now
And the rain drops slowly start to hit the ground
I'm looking down at the river below
Seeing your sad reflection, seeing it glow

Looking up at you dazed
And ask you again if your OK
This time you look up and say
It was fate that brought to the tracks today

I lean over to kiss you
As the rain pours down harder
We are shaken by the sound of a train
You see it and say...come end my pain

I tell you we need to go
You look up teary eyed and

I look up at the train sigh and say OK
I wont let you die alone....we will die together today

I sit back down beside you and hear the train sound
We both look over together and say
Come on train
End our pain

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
